Book A School Visit

Your school may qualify for free entry and/or free transport to Aberdeen Science Centre.

Your school may qualify for full or partial funding to pay for your bus to visit Aberdeen Science Centre (Scotland-wide). Travel funding from the Scottish Government can help you to cover up to 100% of the cost of bus hire in order to make it easier for you to visit Aberdeen Science Centre with your pupils!


So called ‘golden tickets’ are also available for schools to cover the cost of a trip to Aberdeen Science Centre (Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Council schools only).


In addition to this if you have not visited us before and would like a preview before you bring your pupils to the centre, teachers are entitled to enjoy free familiarisation visits. A member of our team will meet you to discuss our programmes and show you around the centre. General teacher information is available here.

To learn more about these ‘golden tickets’ or to book a visit with your school fill out the form below. If you are looking to visit with your community group please head to our community page.
